Overview

Pro-Mark Japanese white oak drumsticks are balanced and carefully crafted using hand-selected white oak. Grown in the mountainous regions of Japan, this particular species of oak is a harder wood than hickory and will take more wear, tear, and punishment. It resists chipping and wearing soft. Made with Pro-Mark's exclusive Millennium II manufacturing process, each stick is hand-finished and hand-inspected. The result is a strength and durability no other stick can match.

Features
  • Harder than hickory
  • Resists chipping
  • Won't wear soft
  • Hand-finished

I've always been a big fan of pro-mark products. I use the nylon tipped 747 Rock sticks for most of my drumming needs. I had bought a set of the Japanese White Oak's and was very impressed, but when I went back to get more, all they had was American Hickory. I'm not a hard hitter, but the angle that I hit my hi-hats tend to chip and eat away my sticks. I broke three sets of the American Hickory sticks in one month, my Japanese Oaks have been going strong for 3-4 months. If you want a high quality stick that is not only going to last a long time, but sound great time and time again, go with the Japanese Oak.

After 20 years of using Promark hickory sticks I decided to switch to Japanese oak in my normal size (5A nylon) to see if they would last longer than hickory. I really wanted to like these oak sticks. They feel great in my hands and I like the slightly heavier weight for rim shots. They play really nicely and don't get nicked up by cymbals like other woods, that much is true. However, after about 1 hour at practice with my band I noticed that the nylon tip had come off of one of my new sticks. I had been rotating between four pairs to break them in evenly, so none of the sticks had much visible wear. I've shredded through hundreds of Promarks in my lifetime and the nylon tips never come off (can't say the same for Vic Firth). I figured it was a fluke and was still feeling pretty good about the oak sticks after day one. I then used the same eight sticks at a show that weekend and broke two more sticks. One snapped off just below the tip and the other split right through the middle on an angle that I rarely see. That's 3 broken sticks after about 2 hours playing time total, or an average of 30 minutes playing time per stick since I was rotating four pairs. I've never had Promark's hickory sticks go that fast. I still love Promark and will always use their sticks because they are the most consistent and well-balanced on the market. I wouldn't buy into the idea that oak will last longer than hickory though. I'm most likely going back to hickory, but I'll use the remaining oak sticks because I do like the feel.

      Comments about PROMARK Japanese White Oak Drumsticks:

      These Promark Oak sticks are all Ive used in 20 years plus. They outlast Hickory sticks 10 to 1 ...absolutely they will. The power rim shots that destroy Hickory sticks does not have that effect on Oak sticks. You get a more solid sound with Oak.. Cross stick rimshots are clearer and louder with deeper tone and the barrel of the stick is not dented as with Hickory sticks.
      6 pair of Promark Oak sticks will last me 1 full year and the sticks are still serviceable .. 180 grit sandpaper puts them back into shape to play a few more months before needing more light sanding.

          Ive used the Promark Oak sticks for 20 years -- Oak sticks will outlast Hickory 10 to 1 ... Power Rim shots destroy Hickory sticks and do so quickly....Not so with Promark Oak sticks. 6 pair of Oak sticks will last me a full year and I play 10 gigs a month, 12 months a year.

            Comments about PROMARK Japanese White Oak Drumsticks:

            I have always preferred the nylon tip drum sticks due to their exceptional sound, particularly with cymbals. I recently switched from an acoustic kit to an electronic kit after using an acoustic for 33 years.

            The nylon tips are even better with the electronic kit than the acoustic kit. I like the 5A size due to their multi-functionality. I highly recommend the purchase of these drum sticks.

            They are somewhat more expensive than other sticks, but I believe in the "old adage" that one gets what they pay for. These sticks last much longer than others.

                Oak does not Splinter like other Woods like Hickory.
                I love the feel of these promark sticks and striking symbols with them sounds much better than the softer Woods.
                The value is much better for the sticks, because they last a lot longer.
                They will Dent instead of Splinter. If anything - the sawdust issue with hickory sticks won't be a problem.

                  I've been using these sticks for awhile and they are very durable and last a long time! The only reason im giving it 4 stars is that they sent me an oddball pair, but after a couple emails they sent me a new paur so shout out to the good customer service!
